At any given time, we are responding to over 30 emergency situations. We provide life-saving essentials in the immediate aftermath of a natural disaster and to people affected by conflict, as well as long-term development support. You can help.
Our economy is broken. Hundreds of millions of people living in extreme poverty while huge rewards go to those at the very top. There are more billionaires than ever before, and their fortunes have grown to record levels. Meanwhile, the world’s poorest got even poorer.
Many governments are fueling this inequality crisis. They are under taxing corporations and wealthy individuals, yet underfunding vital public services like healthcare and education. These policies hit the poor hardest. The human costs are huge, with women and girls suffering the most.
Inequality is keeping people trapped in poverty, let’s step up the fight against it.
Please join us to demand world leaders to tax the rich fairly and invest in vital public services that lift people out of poverty.
Extreme poverty vs extreme wealth: how big is the inequality gap?
Inequality is not inevitable
Children without teachers, clinics without medicines: the human cost of inequality is devastating. The growing gap between rich and poor is undermining the fight against poverty, damaging our economies and fueling public anger across the globe.
Yet inequality is not inevitable – it is a political choice. Concrete steps can be taken to reduce it. By taxing wealth more fairly, enough money could be raised globally to ensure that every child goes to school and no one is bankrupted by the cost of medical treatment for their families.
Join us to urge our political leaders to invest in vital public services and tax the rich fairly. It's time to fight inequality, and beat poverty for good.
